Maybe a remote reservoir like a lot of the 24v E30 guys do.

That looks badass.

Retarded. And not in a good way. Good fabrication work though.


EDIT: Any word on what those turbos are? GT3xxx series?

Just saw the picture links, it's a silverado according to the URL. No wonder it all fits so well.

the wheels are a little thuggish, but this **** is cool too. I could pull the miata with the truck, and sell the cobra for a downpayment on a house.

Tractor trailer wheels with low pro tires? I know they've got kits put to big rig wheels on consumer sized trucks.
